Woodstock WWI Enlistment Map

Access this interactive map here.

We have created a map using GIS technology and Library and Archives Canada records to allow you to see the name and enlistment papers of WWI personnel with the address closest to your home or to any location in the city. You may be neighbours with history? Please note: The map is based on available enlistment records at the time of publishing and may not constitute a complete record.
